How to Enjoy a Buffet or Party Without Overeating | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

You’re at a restaurant and there’s a buffet. So many good things to eat! 

You love food and there are unlimited quantities. Are you worried that you’ll eat too much?

That used to be me. My brain would think, “Free food! Lots of yummy stuff!” and I would eat too much just because it was there. Then I’d feel gross. I’d be stuffed and uncomfortable. Usually gassy too. 

Why do we do this to ourselves? I’ll explain that in this episode, and tell you about a much better way. Because you CAN go to buffets and enjoy them without overeating or experiencing food FOMO.

The problem is that first you have to shed your diet brain.

Listen to learn  how people using the Weight Loss for Foodies Abundance Mindset approach parties and buffets and how different it is from the scarcity diet mindset that you’ve probably had . . . until now!

I hope you’ll use these strategies and prove to yourself that you can go to any buffet or party and enjoy the food without overeating or gaining weight!




About the author 

Shari Broder

My mission is to help foodies ditch dieting and lose the weight for good. Discover what is really causing your weight issues (it isn't that you love food!), and learn how to stop obsessing about food and make peace with food and eating. Get off the diet hamster wheel once and for all and learn to eat consciously, stop emotional eating and enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat.

  1. Two “games” that have help me in buffet/party situations: 1. As I’m a Food Log true believer, I strive to remember EVERY food I eat; that means that when I get home, I’m ready to write down every dab of crab dip and mac&cheese, the number of crackers, the salads, sides and fingers of wine. It really makes me appreciate the food more. 2. I play “food critic”, really concentrating on just how good (or not) things are, and as a “critic”, I can darn well be snooty enough to not eat stuff out of politeness. And if something’s really outstanding, there’s the opportunity to ooh and aah, and go find them and complement their skills!

  2. What you are doing is really important work. I watch everything I eat because I have a HX of low blood sugar which now could become diabetes. Chronic illness comes from eating too much of the wrong foods. Being overweight often leads to chronic illness. You are helping folks with this. Thanks. PS I’m an RN.

  3. I really loved listening to this podcast, such a great advice! I am guilty of overeating when going for a buffet meal and for that reason I rarely go to these places but I will make sure I listen to this podcast again next time before I go, I think it will really help!
